iQOO has confirmed the launch of a new Neo series phone in India. The company recently launched the Neo 7 in India. The phone was a rebadged version of the iQOO Neo 7 SE from China. It looks like another iQOO Neo 7 series phone is launching in India. The company has confirmed the launch of the new Neo series phone without revealing its name. However, there have been rumours that iQOO is launching the Neo 7T in India. It looks like the Neo 7T will launch as the Neo 7 Pro in India. The teaser image shared by iQOO hints at the launch of the Neo 7 Pro in India.

iQOO did not reveal the launch date of the device at the time of writing this. However, we can expect the phone to launch in India in June.


The teaser image shared by Nipun Marya, CEO of iQOO India, has Neo 7 Pro written in the background in red text, a subtle way to confirm the device’s name.

Let’s look at the iQOO Neo 7 Pro specifications, features and other details revealed before the India launch event.

iQOO Neo 7 Pro: Launch Details and Specifications (rumoured)

The iQOO Neo 7 Pro is set to make its debut in India in the coming days. The company teased the launch of its new premium smartphone without confirming the date. The Neo 7 Pro will sit above the Neo 7 5G in India. The company has launched three smartphones in the Neo 7 series in China. The Neo 7 SE in China is available as the Neo 7 5G in India. The other two devices, the Neo 7 5G (China) and Neo 7 Racing Edition have yet to launch in India. Therefore, it is likely that iQOO will launch one of the two premium Neo 7 series phones in India later this year.

A recent report claimed that the Neo 7T with a Snapdragon 8 series chip would launch soon in India. Furthermore, it claimed the phone will feature a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. If the Neo 7T is indeed the Neo 7 Pro, there are high chances of the phone’s India variant being a rebadged version of the New 7 Racing Edition from China.

The Neo 7 Racing Edition was launched in China with a 6.78-inch AMOLED display with a Full HD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. In addition, the phone’s screen supports HDR10+ certification and offers a 20:9 aspect ratio. It also features LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage.

The Neo 7 Pro might launch in India with 8GB and 12GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. The phone will also likely pack a 5000mAh battery and offer support for 120W fast charging out of the box.

On the back, the Neo 7 Racing Edition has a triple-camera setup. It features a 50MP primary camera, an 8MP ultrawide camera and a 2MP macro camera sensor. For selfies, there is a 16MP front camera sensor. The primary rear camera supports optical image stabilisation (OIS).

Other details include an in-display fingerprint scanner, Android 13-based Funtouch OS 13 for the Indian variant, etc. 

The exact launch date of the phone is unknown at the moment. However, we will share more details as and when available.
